Secretary of State
Michigan is proud to recognize its men and women who served in the U.S. Coast Guard. Residents who are retired from the Coast Guard or were honorably discharged are eligible for a Coast Guard Veteran plate. Spouses are not eligible.
The plate is available in either the standard or the Spectacular Peninsulas design. The fee for the standard design is $5. The Spectacular Peninsulas design is $10. If you are purchasing an original plate or replacing an existing plate when renewing, other registration fees may apply. You may also personalize your plate for an additional fee.
Veteran plates can only be used on passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans and motor homes. Trailers and vehicles used commercially are not eligible.
Veterans interested in obtaining a Coast Guard Veteran plate may apply at their local Secretary of State office by submitting a completed Application for Veteran License Plates.
